Colts look for consistency on the road
The Indianapolis Colts will take a 7-4 record into Sunday’s road game in Detroit. Indianapolis is also the front-runner for one of the two available wild-card berths in the upcoming AFC playoffs.
That’s the good news.
The Colts, though, have struggled on the road this season, with three of the team’s four losses occurring away from the friendly confines of Lucas Oil Stadium.
Colts having resilient 2012
If there is a word that best describes the 2012 Indianapolis Colts, it just might be "resilient".Give up a lot of points in road losses to Chicago, the New York Jets and New England, no problem. Lose a close game at home? Again, no problem.
Hilton shines in victory
Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson traded back into the
bottom of the third round to select the Florida International star because
he saw a player with game-breaking speed.
During Sunday’s crucial 20-13 victory against the Buffalo Bills at Lucas
Oil Stadium, the rest of the world saw it, too.
Colts in thick of playoff race
Don't look now, but the upstart Indianapolis Colts have jumped to the front of class when it comes to securing one of the two available wild-card berths in the upcoming AFC playoffs.Coupled with the Pittsburgh Steelers' 20-14 loss at Cleveland Sunday, the Colts' 20-13 home-field win over Buffalo gives the team a 7-4 record and the inside track at the fifth seed in the post-season standings heading into next week's road game with Detroit.

Arians in odd position
Indianapolis Colts interim coach Bruce Arians finds himself in a rather odd position.Arians, a long time assistant coach with the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Colts, had always harbored dreams of being a head coach in the National Football League. But he just never thought that his opportunity would ever come.
